CS Purim Party
(Apr. 16, 2006)
My website is exactly as I want it to be:
(Dec. 31, 2005)
- Simple to develop manually:
a simple text editor always works and unconditionally portable.
- Easy to watch:
no heavy stuff - fast download on slow connections
(fireworks are not welcome).
- Easy to watch:
everything is portable - can be viewed using any browser.
- No frames:
you always know the URL of the page you watch, and you can
correctly link/save/print anything you want. "Back" button works.
- Safe to watch:
neither cookies, nor Java Scripts nor any technique
that may exploit the viewer's computer.
- No hypes:
if you are not impressed by the contents of the page,
I will not try to impress you using any gimmick.
